Crieff Hydro and Respitality donate stays to over 100 unpaid carers

The group also donated 50 family passes to Action Glen Adventure Park at Crieff Hydro Hotel and a group two-hour Gin School experience at 1881 Distillery in Peebles

Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels has revealed that more than 100 unpaid carers in Scotland benefited from its partnership with Shared Care Scotland’s Respitality which launched six months ago.

The hotel group said it has supported the project by donating bed and breakfast stays across its portfolio.

The group also donated 50 family passes to Action Glen Adventure Park at Crieff Hydro Hotel and a group two-hour Gin School experience at 1881 Distillery in Peebles.

Respitality provides a short break stay for unpaid carers which has proven to be beneficial for both their physical and mental health wellbeing.

Nic Oldham, head of customer and commercial at Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “We were delighted to partner with Respitality and feedback like this demonstrates the difference this initiative can make to the unpaid carers it supports by offering the opportunity of some quality family time or a chance to unwind and relax at one of our hotels.

“Unpaid carers so often go unrecognised for the support and care they give to others but it is important they can take time to care for themselves too. We would encourage others in the hospitality industry to get behind this fantastic cause.”
